Modern Pleated Clutch Purse – Sew and Sell

This pattern adapts the gorgeous front pleating detail of Constructiv Patterns larger clutch design to a cute compact size with an optional removable wristlet strap. This purse closes with a recessed zippered closure for a professional-looking finish. The clutch is fully lined with an interior pocket for discreet storage. The finished clutch purse will measure approximately 19 cm wide x 13 cm tall (7.5″ x 5″) with a 5 cm (2″) wide base at the widest part. This clutch is a lovely purse to carry to dinner, an evening out, weddings, proms, etc. The purse design suits fabrics such as medium to heavyweight satin including shantung, brocade, jacquard, raw silk, or light-weight fabrics with the addition of some fusible interfacing to add body and stability. This pattern is not suitable for fabrics which crease heavily, such as linen. This clutch purse project offers an ideal opportunity to sew with vintage or reclaimed fabrics! *Read the notes that accompany the sewing supplies list below for some good information about stabilizer.
